A Decade of Research at St. Clair's Defeat, A New View of the Conflict (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: A Decade of Research at St. Clair's Defeat, A New View of the Conflict
Author: Christine Thompson
Author: Kevin C. Nolan
Abstract: Since 2010, the Applied Anthropology Laboratories, Ball State University, has conducted archaeological, preservation, and interpretation research at St. Clair’s Defeat, a relatively unknown 1791 Northwest Indian War battle that was the largest defeat of U.S. military by American Indian forces, in this case an alliance of nine tribes. Using KOCOA military terrain analysis, we focus on how the use of the landscape influenced the outcome of the battle, specifically the tribal battle strategy. Research results have helped in forming a more nuanced interpretation of the battle, one that more fully recognizes and balances the involvement and decisions of both the American Indian tribes and the U.S. military. We use community engaged scholarship methods as we work with the local community of Fort Recovery, Ohio, the Ohio History Connection, and over a dozen U.S. federally recognized tribes to communicate these results to the public in multiple ways. We use our research results and a humanities focus to tell the story within a bigger context of tribes protecting their homelands, the aftermath for tribes resulting in removal and attempted eradication of their culture, and the effects of this battle and the Northwest Indian War on tribes today.

St. Clair's Defeat: Working Towards a New View with Archaeology (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: St. Clair's Defeat: Working Towards a New View with Archaeology
Author: Christine Thompson
Author: Kevin C. Nolan
Abstract: St. Clair’s Defeat was a Northwest Indian War battle in 1791, that was a resounding victory for 9 tribes in the American Indian alliance. Ball State University has conducted archaeological and preservation research at the site of St. Clair’s Defeat (in modern day Fort Recovery, Ohio) since 2010. Our research focuses on landscape analysis,  both in the context of the location of recovered artifacts and in the role the landscape played in the battle strategies of both the American Indian alliance and U.S. forces. Research results have helped in forming a more nuanced interpretation of the battle, one that more fully recognizes and balances the involvement and decisions of both the American Indian tribes and the U.S. military.

Reflections on Interpretive Authority: Nothing About Us Without Us (Article)
Title: Reflections on Interpretive Authority: Nothing About Us Without Us
Author: Mandy Kirchgessner
Author: Diane Hunter
Author: Christine Thompson
Abstract: At NAI’s 2022 National Conference, a team of eight panelists explored collaborations between Indigenous community members and museums. Four distinct projects representing tangible and intangible Indigenous culture were presented by pairs, who worked together to bring those stories to life. Each pair included an Indigenous knowledge-bearer and museum staff member. Together, panelists and audience members explored the concept of “nothing about us without us,” and how critical this understanding is to interpretive work today.
